Motu Rarotonga Blog

We are thrilled to be ranked Rarotonga’s best place to stay on Tripadvisor! The rankings for Rarotonga’s top places to stay are based on guest reviews so we thank all our wonderful guests that have stayed with us over the past few years.

Your support, feedback and reviews have helped us shape MOTU into something we and our guests love, and which our team feels proud of.

So what makes us Rarotonga’s best resort?

We Are Situated On Rarotonga’s Best Beach

Our beachfront villas overlook Rarotonga’s best beach, Titikaveka. With gentle pristine water and crisp white sand, Titikaveka is an idyllic location for a relaxing tropical getaway. Our guests can enjoy complimentary snorkeling and stand up paddleboarding in the lagoon or relax on a sun lounger on their private beachfront sun decks while soaking up the peaceful view. Our guests often comment that they’re the only people on the beach and that being away from the crowds makes MOTU feel their own private retreat. Our private location on Rarotonga’s best beach is one of the things that has put us at the top of the list of Rarotonga’s best resorts.

Our Island Luxe Beachfront Villas

At MOTU we have undergone a huge regeneration project over the last few years including the complete redecoration and modernisation of our Rarotonga villas. Our comfortable luxury villas are one of our features that makes us one of Rarotonga’s best places to stay. In each of our 11 villas we have installed new bathrooms and kitchenettes, and given the interiors a complete luxury makeover. Their island luxe styling includes a soft natural colour palette, natural materials, modern Pacific accents and traditional Rarotongan embroidery (tivaevae) on the bedspreads and cushion covers. An extra special touch is that each villa contains a collection of artworks from artists with Rarotongan and Pasifika heritage.

Every Stay At MOTU Contributes To Our Community

One of the reasons our guests keep coming back to MOTU is that each time they stay with us, the profit from their stay funds our initiatives in healthcare, education and the arts. We have a truly sustainable ethos that goes beyond using eco-friendly products and practises. We establish and support community initiatives that make a demonstrable, measurable impact on our people and environment. We are the only luxury accommodation on Rarotonga with a community ethos and this is one of our unique elements that makes us Rarotonga’s best resort.
